We live in a world shaped by gender.

Virtually every aspect of our existence –  from the cars we drive and the luggage we carry, to the defining inventions of our past and the ideas that shape our future - is affected by our deeply held beliefs about the role of men and women within society.  It’s the reason why, every day, extraordinary inventions and innovative ideas are ignored by investors.  And why it took more than 5,000 years to attach wheels to a suitcase.

 But it doesn’t have to be this way.

For too long we have underestimated the consequences of sexism in our economy, and the way it holds all of us – women and men - back. In Mother of Invention bestselling author Katrine Marçal sets the record straight and shows how, in a time of crisis, the ideas and ingenuity of women are the key to our future.
